Give us your short bio? Hey! My name is Jermaine Craig. My background and journey to this point have been split into two lanes, one being a designer and the other being as tinkerer/entrepreneur. I mostly grew up in London, but also made up some of my childhood in Birmingham (UK) and also Nigeria. I don’t have a field anymore I just like solving problems, and I’ll typically learn whatever skills are necessary to best position myself to solve the problem I’m fixated on. What led you into product design?
